REACT Live Fire Self Defense Class
The REACT Live Fire Self Defense Class is a one of a kind training event. Shooters maneuver through 3 stages of walls, corners, and shoot or no shoot targets allowing them to test their decision making skills in a timed situation simulating stress from a real event. By mixing aspects of the action shooting sports with self defense situations, shooters can move through the courses in a realistic live fire environment while engaging static and activating moving targets. If you want to test and improve your fundamental self defense skills in a real world setting this is the class. If you are on a church safety team, a commissioned school security officer, have a concealed carry license or own a gun for home self defense this class should be at the top of your list to attend.
Our REACT class is open to all shooters with good pistol or carbine shooting fundamentals, including safety knowledge. You don’t have to be an expert shooter to take this course. It is designed to improve the mental decision making skills and real world shooting abilities of everyday people that conceal carry or want to protect their family and home. Most people never have the opportunity to test their ability to move with a loaded gun and engage multiple targets in different locations while moving in & out of cover.
Students do not need special gear as the REACT Live Fire Self Defense Class is designed to utilize everyday carry or duty gear with enough magazines to have 24 rounds loaded for each stage. While we suggest using your daily carry gun and clothing, any pistol, PCC, AR-15 or 22 is allowed. Some shooters even bring their body armor to gain experience and see how body armor affects their movement and shooting. Each time we run the class, it utilizes different scenarios so you can take it multiple times and not shoot the same stages. There’s no better way to see what shooting and decision making skills you need to work on while having a blast shooting in this class. Hands down, students find this to be our most exhilarating class offered. We recommend taking this class at least once a year and before or right after our Arkansas Concealed Carry License Class.
